In more ways than one. I might’ve overloaded my plate, but I’m getting through it and will hopefully not be a sobbing mess curled up in a ball in the corner after the next couple of weeks.
This is the time of year that I kick into high gear for production so I can release on time in June. I’ve got my editing done for book 6. I’ve got it formatted. And soon cover design work will begin. At the same time I’m closing on a house and moving. And you know what? Let’s throw a convention in there that I’ll have a booth at. (I didn’t plan this out very well.)
That’s not counting other personal things going on as well. I worry the risk of juggling all of this will land in something crashing.
IWSG Question of the Month: Are you a risk-taker when writing? Do you try something radically different in style/POV/etc. or add controversial topics to your work?
I guess? I know I’ll go into sensitive topics, but that’s part of the world I’m in. I’m not going to try to cover up things like racism and sexism among other things. I’ve got ideas for other projects that may push even those boundaries.
I just haven’t found the time to get started on any of them. As it is, I’ll be poking at what exists of the 7th book in the series to see what I can salvage and what I need to do to get the story to take off.
For now, I’m just going to keep pushing through this crazy schedule I accidentally made for myself and see how things go. I’m sure it’ll be fine, but it doesn’t mean I’m not going to be running in circles in a panic in the meantime.
